BUTTERFLY

 

A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam
And for a brief moment its glory and beauty
belong to our world
But then it flies again
And though we wish it could have stayed…
We feel lucky to have seen it.

To plan your visit go to The New York Botanical Garden homepage to learn more. If you have a chance, head to The Annual Rose Garden Festival on June 7th and 8th.
If you are planning to shoot, 2-3 hours in my opinion is just not enough. It would help to have an extra camera body with you. I found it hard to keep switching between wide, macro and prime. If you live in the area, check out the The New York Botanical Zoological Photographic Society. Their new season starts in September and they are located just across the street from the gardens.

 

 

 

 

 

 

THEY CAN’T HELP BUT SHINE
 
“A tulip doesn’t strive to impress anyone. It doesn’t struggle to be different than a rose. It doesn’t have to. It is different. And there’s room in the garden for every flower.
Red Tulips
You didn’t have to struggle to make your face different than anyone else’s on earth. It just is. You are unique because you were created that way. Look at little children in kindergarten. They’re all different without trying to be. As long as they’re unselfconsciously being themselves, they can’t help but shine. It’s only later, when children are taught to compete, to strive to be better than others, that their natural light becomes distorted.” –  quote by Marianne Williamson

BABY SHOOT

 

I think that babies love me.

Kids, in general, have always been comfortable with me, whether they know me or not.  That is the main reason why I was so excited about my very first “human” photo-shoot.

Mommy of the baby was the one I was worried about.  I was going into this shoot completely blind – I did not know the family and I had never done this before.  As it turned out – mom was absolutely wonderful, easy going and excited herself to be a part of this project.

Before the shoot, it helped a great deal to do my own research online.  Check out the list of over 100 free tutorials for newborn photography at www.iheartfaces.com

BABY

When I arrived, my little model was unexpectedly wide awake.

BABY

That did not last long, however.  Another feeding time and he slept like an angel through the rest of the shoot.

BABY

A large armchair was the perfect prop to show off the size of the baby.

Props definitely are necessary.  Since I did not have any in my own “prop bag”, I decided to make one myself – a knitted elf hat. I am so thankful to my grandma for teaching me how to knit at a young age.  It paid off!

Macro lens is perfect for capturing the truly amazing and precious details.

BABY

This was an absolutely fun experience and it gave me the opportunity to learn from my mistakes.

One of the biggest lessons to share – pay attention to details and backgrounds to prevent extra work during post-production.

A big thank you to my friend for setting this up and to my beautiful model and his mommy for being so patient and making me feel so welcome in your home.

SEAGULL STALKING

 

Shortly before Christmas, my husband surprised me with my very first DSLR camera along with an AF-S DX NIKKOR 55-300mm f/4.5-5.6G ED VR lens and I knew exactly where to go to for test shots.

For me as an amateur, nature photography was the best way to get acquainted with the equipment, get used to holding the camera, understand how to change settings etc.

I spent most of the winter “stalking” seagulls at the nearby beach. I never thought highly of birdwatching as a hobby until I started shooting.  It is so satisfying to see a bird or an animal do something interesting and then try to capture it.  Granted, hundreds of my shots ended up in the trash!  Mostly due to blurry images, missed moments and equipment training.

Here are some of my favorite shots!

SNOWSTORM NEMO 2013

 

 

Snowstorm Nemo brought a huge amount of snow and strong winds, knocking out power lines and shutting down streets for several days. Our area had a snowfall of about 30” (70 cm) overnight.

These shots were taken the next day when we took a walk around the neighborhood.
